i am excited to share this sweet little editorial feature that i photographed during the summer for lehigh valley style magazine. it highlights some really wonderful local etsy shops in the area. being obsessed with etsy myself i was really excited to have a chance to shoot this.

i actually photographed each of the items in my home. so i used some of my own props.


the boys totally ate that cupcake in a jar once i was done shooting that picture. they kept asking me if i was done yet.


the bride and the groom on the right is a thank you card postcard of a picture that geoff took this summer at one of our weddings.


the drawing in the upper right corner of the left hand side photo was drawn by our son jonas.


the black and white photo was my mom's senior photo.

it has been a little over a week since brooke passed away. i mentioned it on my facebook page and brooke and ben are currently my profile photo but i feel like i have more to share about her. from the moment that i met brooke i loved her. she was one of those people that lit up a room. brooke and ben's wedding was the first destination wedding that we ever shot and their wedding in mexico was ridiculously fun. their love was beautiful and evident to everyone.

geoff and i went to the funeral on thursday. when we pulled up to the service the gentlemen helping to park the cars were overwhelmed with the hundreds of people that showed up to show support to ben. to know brooke was to love her.and apparently everyone else felt the same way. i have felt so helpless this last week - times like these are so upsetting but i have always believed that people gather together and help one another in moments like this. it becomes suddenly clear that the everyday stress really isn't so stressful and what truly matters are family and friends.

i wanted to share a few of my favorite photos of brooke & ben below. i also want to mention that brooke's family has set up a fund for their newborn daughter olivia.

donations may be sent to "Memorial Fund for Olivia Grace Park" at any td bank location or sent to td bank. (4020 city avenue philadelphia pa 19131) (phone# 215-477-7620)

olivia is beautiful and healthy.

vangie was a bridesmaid in one of our favorite weddings ever so of course we were thrilled when she asked us to be part of her wedding. jesse and vangie were married at the beautiful crossed keys inn. the day was very cloudy and we were all waiting for the rain to come...but besides a few sprinkles it never did. the grounds were beautiful and the bridesmaids' flowers were grown on site. the lovely laid back ceremony led to a fun and spirited party under the tent. enjoy!
